Agnes Keith House

Sabah, Malaysia

Agnes Keith House is a heritage museum that was once the home of Agnes Newton Keith, a famous writer during the colonial era that wrote 'Three Came Home' - a memoir of the author's time during her interment in a prison camp when North Borneo was invaded by Japanese forces. Perched on a hill overlooking the bay at Sandakan, the historical bungalow features a gallery dedicated to her background.

The various rooms in the home are also furnished in their original setting, littered with anitques and exhibits to peruse. Located next door is a garden space with another colonial bungalow that houses a restaurant and bar that serves continental cuisine. Finally, visitors may walk down to an observatory platform that overlooks the bay of Sandakan just below the garden.
